Default Interesting new Eliminator... anyone see it?

Was this boat in the Ft. Lauderdale show as they state on their website and magazine ads? What was it like? I am not interested, just curious.

They boat that thing in Havasu all the time. I personally think it's hideous but alot of poeple like it. I guess it's VERY plush inside and set up to be a dive/sport fish ocean boat. Whatever, it's different (at least for Eliminator) that's for sure.

HUMM
I would think that they would have learned from what Advantage did with thier 40' Poker run.
Open top! Period!
They are west coast builders. NOT northeastern fisherman

I think it's awesome and innovative. Like someone mentioned Eliminator is a west coast builder and historicallly "go-fast" only. Not sure of the pricetag but it looks pretty cool to me. I'd rather have a conventional cat but new boats take lots of $$$

Not too good for fishing with those surface drives sticking out. Anyone know the speeds?

i think it's awesome too... there's nothing like it...and it is fast for a boat of it's class... it goes like 60 mph... you have to remember that it's supposed to be an ocean cruiser not you're typical lake boat... and just think how this thing must handle in the ocean... i think it's pretty cool... just my .02

read a artical a while back and mr. leach said that he did alot of fishing in the bahamas and belives there is a market for it. it is intended to be a fish/dive boat . not a poker runner.
